Starting on July 1, 2022, the standard mileage rate for purposes of deductible business expenses is 62.5 cents per mile, and increase of 4 cents from the 58.5 cents per mile used in the past from January 1, 2022, to June 30th, 2022. The rate for purposes of transportation primarily for, and essential to, a deduction of the cost of medical care under Section 213 also goes up by 4 cents, to 22 cents per mile from 18 cents in the first half of the year.
